About Us

About Us

The Benildean is the official student magazine of Benilde, crafted by a team of writers and creatives from the Benildean Press Corps (BPC), the official student journalist organization of De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. We cater to the needs of the Benildean community by providing various services in the fields of journalism, visual and literary arts.

Each school year, we publish The Benildean (magazine), and annual issues of Dekunstrukt (photography folio), Horizons (art folio), and Shades of Gray (literary folio).

BPC’s Brand DNA


We are driven not only by our passion to create—we are fueled by the desire to blaze paths, to connect, and to help our audience discover. To be creative is everything that we are and all that we do.


We serve as a mirror of the culture, life and times of the youth of today––showcasing things that matter in ways the current generation can best appreciate and understand.


Not a show of intelligence, but an attitude—our aim is to engage, to compel, and to discuss. The Benildean is more than his or her talents.
